Marblehead is a picturesque seacoast town on Boston's North Shore. Its winding streets are lined with houses which reflect its history: 17th century homes of the early fisherman, 18th century mansions of ship owners (such as the Lee and Hooper mansions) and 19th century edifices such as Abbot Hall where the famous painting "The Spirit of '76" can be seen.
The bed & breakfast is within walking distance of the historic sites of Old Town, quaint shops and galleries, as well as restaurants which offer a variety of dining experiences. From the nearby parks and beaches, guests can enjoy the constant activity of lobster boats and racing yachts.
